ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಹಚ್ಛಿದ ಹಾಡು – Diwali Song Lyrics -Part 1

I had posted these lyrics last year and had no time to convert the same in English. Many had requested for the lyrics in English. Attached below are the lyrics for the Diwali Song Part 1. Re posting the same post to have the lyrics in English as well. Enjoy.

bannisi gopi ta harasidalu ||pa||

yenneyanothutha yadukula thilakage ||A PA||

ayushyavanthanagu athi ballidanagu |
mayada khalara mardhanananaagu |
rayara palisu rakkasara solisu |
vaayusuthage nee nodeyanagenuthali || 1||

dhiranu neenagu dhayambhudiyagu |
Aa rukminige neenarasanaagu |
marana pithanagu madhusudhananaagu |
dhwaravathige nee dhoreyagenuthali || 2||

aanada neenagu achyutha neenagu |
dhanavanthakanagu dhayavaagu |
shreenivasananagu shrinidhi neenagu |
gyani purandara vittalanagenuthali || 3||

I found two wonderful lyrics to be sung during Naraka Chatrudashi day while applying oil and doing Aarathi in the morning. So, here comes the first song. I will post the other one also soon.

ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಹಚ್ಛಿದ ಹಾಡು

ಬಣ್ಣಿಸಿ ಗೋಪಿ ತಾ ಹರಸಿದಳು ||ಪ||

ಎಣ್ಣೆಯನೊತ್ತುತ ಯದುಕುಲ ತಿಲಕಗೆ || ಅ.ಪ.||

ಆಯುಷ್ಯವಂತನಾಗು ಅತಿ ಬಲ್ಲಿದನಾಗು |
ಮಯದ ಖಳರ ಮರ್ಧನನಾಗು |
ರಾಯರ ಪಾಲಿಸು ರಕ್ಕಸರ ಸೋಲಿಸು |
ವಾಯಸುತಗೆ ನೀ ನೊಡೆಯನಾಗೆನುತಲಿ ||1||

ಧೀರನು ನೀನಾಗು ದಯಾಂಬುಧಿಯಾಗು |
ಆ ರುಕ್ಮಿಣಿಗೆ ನೀನರಸನಾಗು |
ಮಾರನ ಪಿತನಾಗು ಮಧುಸೂದನನಾಗು |
ದ್ವಾರಾವತಿಗೆ ನೀ ದೊರೆಯಾಗೆನುತಲಿ ||2||

ಆನಂದ ನೀನಾಗು ಅಚ್ಯುತ ನೀನಾಗು |
ದಾನವಾಂತಕನಾಗು ದಯವಾಗು |
ಶ್ರೀನಿವಾಸನಾಗು ಶ್ರೀನಿಧಿ ನೀನಾಗು |
ಜ್ಜಾನಿ ಪುರಂದರ ವಿಠಲನಾಗೆನುತಲಿ ||3||

    I typed this online, so didn;t get a chance to save it in English. We have to type word by word, press enter to translate to kannada. If not, I would have had the lyrics in English also if I typed in Baraha.

    As I said earlier, Baraha doesn’t work on my Windows 7 64 bit laptop.

      In 18th century British used to use kannada for official purposes to convey to Indians who didn’t understand English. So important kannada was!-sudhir sarnobat

        Dear MeerajiNamaskara.I am still to send my Tamil version of Shri Raghavendra Kavacham using ‘Baraha’, as indicated in my email to you a while ago. My apologies for the delay and it will be sent to you soon with Rayaru’s blessings. Thanks and rgds Krishna Venkataraman

    Hi Meera,

    Stumbled across ur site when I was searching for ‘Bhagyada Lakshmi Baramma’ song for Laxmi Puja this year. I am a Kannada Madhwa, but throughout my life have lived in Mumbai or NY; hence cant read or write in Kannada….would be really great if u could translate these Diwali aarti songs into English for people like me.
    Keep up the good work. Loved ur recipe section too. Reminded me sooo much of my mom’s cooking…..

    Hi Meera,
    PLease post the importance of abhyanga also the right method to do it

    So Sweet of you dear. Thank you very much. You are doing a great Seva to the community through your work here.


  12. Namasthe,

    You have a very wonderful site here. I have linked your song to my blog. All your hardwork is truly appreciated and keep up this good work.

    Thumba thumba dhanya wada nimma ee efforts ge.

    ithi nimma,

    Dear Meera,
    Thanks a lot for all the three Diwali songs.The more I see your posts the more nostalgic I get.
    We used to enjoy more of fireworks and made sure to bring a few noisy ones.Everybody used to clean the entire house,freshly put rangoli,kemmanu,deck the front door & pooja room door with mango leaves toran,flowers.Then we liked the Enne Shastra when my grannies used to apply the oil singing these songs and doing arathi for us! The pooja,crackers,festive food made up for a wonderful experience.Surely ,we had a blast during those good old times.
    Thanks for bringing back those wonderful memories.

    Hello, devotees: Nagalakshmi, Raji, and Meeraghu: While I share with you the enthusiasm over the beautiful song, I must regret to tell you that I have been missing the enjoyment, because I don’t know Kannada. Hence, may I request you to post the song in English to my mail address? Hope, you understand my predicament. – bgrinner.


    • Posted by meeraghu on October 29, 2010 at 9:43 am

      The disadvantage of typing in google transliteration is that there is no way to get it in two languages. I can’t install Baraha on my Windows 7 64 bit computer. So, can’t translate anytime soon.


    • Posted by ksrao on October 30, 2010 at 2:26 am

      The essence of a song gets lost in transliteration. so it si better to learn Kannada to appreciate the song.


  15. Posted by Raji on October 29, 2010 at 8:47 am

    Thankyou for sending the lyrics is it possible for you to send the tune for this song please


    • Posted by meeraghu on October 29, 2010 at 9:21 am

      I don’t know the tune myself. Just saw this last week, and decided to post for all visitors.


    • Posted by Krishna Venkataraman on December 11, 2011 at 5:53 am

      Dear Meeraji
      I have been following this site for some time as Rayaru’s devotee and am feeling very happy. I wanted to post Shri Raghavendra Kavacham which I made in TAMIL script using BARAHA package as some people were interested in Tamil version. It had been my prarthana for quite some time to make and post it and now with Rayaru’s grace, I am ready to send it to post in your holy website. I am not sure how to go ahead and someway I am getting across to you as a reply to some body’s comments. My apologies if it is not right. Awaiting your kind reply and thanks.
      Krishna Venkataraman

        It would be really helpful if you could let us knw d dtls since we plan to visit dis weekend.

        Thanks a ton!! for your time in advance.. 🙂

      • Posted by meeraghu on October 12, 2011 at 12:10 pm

        Not sure if there is any detail online. And I don’t have any details myself either.

    • Posted by Ritha on November 10, 2015 at 1:22 am
